When Everquest II came out I was so torn whether or not I would want to play it. I mean, I was so huge into Everquest that it just couldn’t be the same right? So I tried it, and obviously didn’t feel the same way about the original. Some months or years later I decided I wanted to try it out again. But alas, the same feelings were had, the game just wasn’t for me.
I’ve had the same experience with Star Wars: The Old Republic. I really wanted to love the game, because Star Wars is one of my favorite universes. But after playing for a few weeks I just couldn’t find myself getting in to it. After the game went free to play I decided that I wanted to try it out again, just to see if my feelings would change, but again, it just never stuck with me.
What about you? Do you return to games that you’re not crazy about in hopes that something has changed? Maybe things will be different this time! Or do you sometimes go back and re-try something to see what you’ve missed?
